Three weeks ago I went to see the Scissor Sisters live at Brixton Academy. Their smaller gigs are so much more impressive than arena tours. And of course I got down to the front, or as close as I could. Here’s some photos:

Two new videos have caught my attention this week. I recently linked to the Scissor Sisters teaser track, Invisible Light, and haven’t been able to stop singing it since. It’s a brilliant track, made all the better by Sir Ian McKellen’s spoken section talking of “Babylon, where mortal diamonds tower”, a place where “whores, gladiators and party children all wake from their slumber”.
But this isn’t the first track to be released as a single. That honour goes to Fire With Fire, the video for which was released this week. Loving it (can’t wait to see them in three weeks time).
The new Kylie video for All The Lovers has also just been released. Although not quite as excited as my friend Gari, I’m loving the video. Although the sexualness of the video reminded me of a news story I also heard about today. As you watch the video (white inflatable elephant and all) and see all of Kylie’s lovers writhe about beneath her, boy-girl, girl-girl, boy-boy, spare a thought for the number of indirect lovers that would amount to… Sex & The City’s four girls [indirectly, at least] had 115 MILLION partners between them. Play safe guys.

…to finally have the internet again after moving flat. I always remembered Internet being the thing that took a while to sort out – getting the phone line, then getting our ISP to finally connect up.

But since the internet is now connected I’ve rather enjoyed browsing a number of tunes on youtube… here’s some of my current faves:
